Is a Double Dutch Oven Worth it?

Sep. 14, 2023

A double-sided Dutch oven is a versatile piece of cast iron cookware with a base similar to a traditional Dutch oven and a domed lid that is usually flatter and deeper than the original lid. The lid and pot have a handle on each side, which is designed to allow the lid to be flipped over and cooked like a frying pan. Allows you to prepare multiple dishes simultaneously in different settings, increasing flexibility and capacity.


Double-sided Dutch ovens are made of cast iron, so they can get searing hot and retain heat well, which means they're perfect for slow-cooking or roasting a variety of foods, including meats and vegetables. Of course, it's also great for toasting, heat retention and a tight lid are key to crispy country bread. The steam left in the pot when the lid is on gives you the best crust.

The lid can be used as a frying pan on its own for frying steaks, fish, eggs, or pancakes, or you can even use it as a sizzling griddle. Great options for cooking indoors or camping outdoors. It truly realizes multiple uses in one pot, saving time and space.  


Double Dutch ovens include all the features of a regular Dutch oven, providing cooking flexibility while saving cooking time. The difference between a double Dutch oven and a regular Dutch oven is that the lid of a Dutch oven is deeper than a regular oven, allowing you to flip the lid over and use it as a skillet. Its handle is in the same position as the oven. Therefore, you can use the heat of the oven to prepare food on the lid. Alternatively, you can use the lid alone as a frying pan over whatever heat source the Dutch oven itself uses. The lid of a Dutch oven is not that deep as it is not used for cooking, just to seal the Dutch oven and retain the heat and flavor.
